    Well this is what I have so far for my OOT Bags. My FI made a good point about the hand wipes.. there is only one! So, I'm putting those into the First Aid kits so they don't go to waste and getting the little bottles of sanitizer instead.
    The day planners were 2 for $1.00 at the dollar store - The surfer dude's are for the guys and the flamingos are for the girls.

    Everything actually came from the dollar store!! Love it :)

    Just waiting on our bags from cheaptotes.com. We bought the neutral ones and are going to transfer our monogram on them ourselves!

          If you really want to use the hand wipes instead of the bottles, you can look for the box of individually wrapped Purell wipes. There were more than 100 in the box so I was able to give several packets to each guest. I just put them right into the first aid kit too. I think I got those from Staples as well.

          The box looks like this:

          And each was individually wrapped like this:

                  I just got those hand sanitizers-I think that they are a great idea!

                    We are going to include a book (not sure if we'll do all the same or a few) since we'll be at the beach and I know I always run out of reading material on the plane! We figured if there is some overlap it will also give guests that don't know each other well something to talk about. Kind of like a big wedding book club of sorts. We haven't done it yet so I don't know if it'll go over well; I'll let you know! We'll probably try to find a book by a PV author or with PV as the setting.
                    We're married! Jamie

                      I have one thing to add that may be a little pricey but would have come in very handy - a small USB memory stick. A few of us had laptops so were downloading the picture cards from each other's cameras, but it would have been great to be able to put all pictures on one laptop and store the photos to a USB port for everyone. I am not that tech savvy so am unsure how big of a memory stick you would need, but I would think a 1G would have been enough.

                      Also, we used paper bags because I thought all of my guests were seasoned travelers and would have their own beach bags but many of them either didn't have one or forgot theirs, so I wish I would have spent the money on beach bags (for the women at least - the guys wouldn't have used them).
